The last time Reese Witherspoon played a country singer, the actress took home the Oscar for best actress. It looks like Witherspoon knows whatâ€™s good for her as The Los Angeles Times reports that the actress is expected to take on another country singing role in the long anticipated Paper Wings. Furthermore, it looks like Tom Cruise will most likely star alongside her in the film.
At the center of the filmâ€™s premise is a rodeo love story. A cowboy champ falls in love with a country singer on the edge of stardom.
Although the film is currently in production with Sony, its first home was supposed to be with New Line Cinema. Overbrook Entertainment, which is owned by Tom Cruiseâ€™s friend Will Smith, is currently set to produce the film.
Among the candidates for director is Gabriele Muccino, who previously directed the Will Smith led films Seven Pounds and his Oscar nominated performance in The Pursuit of Happyness.[SOURCE]
